So cute! I love any hot drinks in the winter - for super easy hot cider, I pour a jug of apple cider in my crock pot, add some cinnamon sticks, a few cloves and a bit of brown sugar. Let it simmer and make the house smell yummy before you enjoy...

I am going to be giving table runners this holiday season

VickiT said...

Sadly, I have not started making things yet this year. I'm planning to make pajamas for each of my grandkids. I still need a Christmas Tree Skirt for our tree. I'm still using one I made years ago and really would love a new one that is more matched with our tree we have now. No, my tree is not green. My husband surprised me and bought me a gorgeous purple tree I saw in the window at a bookstore. He actually bought the one from their window that day because it was their last one. It was hard for me to go to a fake tree but purple makes it easier to handle. :)

VickiT said...

I commented but am not seeing yet to add to that comment since I neglected to answer - my favorite winter drink is Cinnamon Hot Chocolate. I had it a few years back and was hooked. It sounded strange but wow, awesome so try it if you never have. It's also called Mexican Hot Chocolate.
